Sowing a few seeds...
Once upon a time, on a simple homestead,
four little seeds shared an itty-bitty shed...
My daughter, Cynthia, has written a great little children's book - and she has asked me to illustrate it! I am having a lot of fun working with her one this book, which is the first in a series that we will create. As part of my retrospective show at The Frame and I, I have several sketches for our book on display. If you are in the Prescott, Arizona area drop by The Frame and I, November 20, from 6 - 8 pm. You can meet me in person (or say 'hi' if you already know me!) and see a lot of my artwork. No kidding, I have over 100 pieces of artwork there - not counting ACEOs!
Want to know a little bit more about our first book? Well, it tells the story of four little seeds that set out for the adventure of a lifetime! Where will their journeys take them? You will have to wait for the book to see! As Cynthia says, this is "A Seussical-style analogy of the Parable of the Sower" . If you can't wait for our book, you can read the parable in The Book - Matthew 13, in The Bible. She has done a wonderful job of turning this great parable into a delightful children's story.
I will introduce you to our little seeds soon and I promise to keep you all updated on the journey that they are making!
